To The Young Men of Oldham and Adjoining Counties


From the Louisville Daily Journal, September 14, 1861


The undersigned is authorized to raise in Oldham and adjoining counties a company of infantry for the service of the United States, to form a part of the Regiment now being raised by Colonels Pope and Jouett; companies to consist of from 88 to 101 men.


Kentuckians! your State has been invaded. There is now no alternative -- if you would preserve the respect of your fellow men and of yourselves -- but to rally and drive the invader back. Your flag is the Star Spangled Banner of the nation. Your leader, the gallant Anderson. Your motive for battle, the sanctity of home and fireside! Prove yourselves worthy the better days of the Republic.


D. B. WHARTON
